cards to work with to form a government here. one of his deputies, the deputy prime minister, frankly admitted that, in fact, they could have lost the young voters in this election and that is the main reason why they are now down a quarter from the total of the seats that they had in the outgoing. >> north korea is promising to strengthen its nuclear program after a new round of u.n. sanctions. this victory council unanimously passed a resolution in response to rocket launch -- the security council unanimously passed a resolution in response to the rocket launch in december. >> the draft resolution has been adopted unanimously. as resolution 27, 2013. >> as resolution 2087, 2013. >> the security council condemned what it described as a missilemelissposted technology and warned that for the consequences. >> today's resolution makes clear that, if north korea chooses again to defy the international community, such as by conducting of the and -- conducting another launch for a nuclear test, then the council will take significant action. >> the difference was the near- minute response fr
coalition government after benjamin netanyahu failed to win an outcry majority in tuesday's general election. the alliance ended the day with fewer seats in parliament, losing around one quarter, but remaining the largest group. the centrist party was the surprise of the night. katya? >> benjamin netanyahu certainly got a bloody nose in those elections yesterday, his pre- election slogan, strong leader for strong israel, rings rather hollow. clearly many israelis did not like his leadership style, many felt he was too arrogant and out of touch and they shouted loudly for change. that will what impact the domestic policy. one out of four people in this country are living in poverty. it will also affect how they move forward on the crisis around the iranian nuclear program and the israeli palestinian crisis, whether they will move towards restarting long stalled peace talks. you can see the signal -- the city walls behind me there. the political makeup of the future coalition government will impact them and how it moves on those policies. there is a lot of wheeling and dealing that has been go

money in my money? it makes economic sense. this culture of promoting these ideas with government capitol only creates government welfare or corporate welfare and creates corporate dependence. gerri: companies that fail as we talked about some many times in the show. whether you're talking about solyndra or a number of others that our government financed. you would think that maybe these are just wacked-out the trees coming of the wild ideas. and back, this green growth alliance has members like the world bank, deutsche bank, any number, ge can hsbc as members. these big companies who went to up the bus in their expensive airlines to my drinking champagne, and they're telling us what to do with our taxpayer dollars. it just makes me angry, and i think what is the fairness and that? >> there is no fairness. and it is something, the occupy wall street and the partnership agreement among corporate welfare. these huge companies are really pigs at the trough when it comes to a taxpayer money, and does not matter how big or small the company. there is money to be had these companies goi

this libyan government have the will and capacity to have the suspects involved and i think they have to strain the capacity to try to arrest powerful armed elements in the eastern part of the country and i don't know if they have it even if they have the will to use that capacity. can you tell us after the attack that they are trying to bring the culprits to justice, what do you think of the libyan government. >> you drew exactly the right description. is it well or capacity? what you need is both. i found the libyan officials to be willing, but without capacity. part of our challenge is to help them build greater capacity because it's about them. it's not only about what happened to us in benghazi which every official in the libyan government was deeply upset about, but they have their own problems now. they are having leaders attack and assassinated on a regular basis. we have to do more to build up the security capacity and i would ask this committee to work with us. there holds on a lot of the security funding that go to kwlab to assist them in building capacity. there those i kn
continuing resolutions to fund the government forever is unsustainable. you need to pass a budget to begin with a foundation. >> mr. cole, i also talked to attorneys, our attorneys, some other attorneys, not just on our staff and i tell them, talk to me like i can understand you. because they talk too much legal lease. i ask them, if i get a paycheck in my account every month and i don't get that paycheck in my account, so whenever it may come, at the end of the year, that's varying. their opinion, that could be. they didn't say it was. they said it could be that could violate the 27th amendment because they're varyingnot coming this month. coming at the end of the year. the other thing i would like to -- don't understand -- and i want to tell you like i think and how it is. we are kind of like trying to not punish but penalize the other side. the senate. because they haven't acted. so what we're doing is drafting legislation that's going to make our side, whether we pass or maybe sometimes not pass a budget, and we're going to punish, not punish. maybe penalize our side by not getting a p
pioneer and activist committed suicide because the government was coming after him. amazing new information about that. we're going to have his lawyer on the show to talk about it. >> i know this case was weighing heavily on his mind and a significant source of stress for him. >> yes he stole information but it was not worth what they were putting him through. >> cenk: turns out that the government might have another reason because schwartz might be a wikileaks source. it's go time.

knew more about libya than anybody else in our government did not see a direct threat of an attack of this nature and scale despite the overall trend of security problems that we faced. and i have to add, neither did the intelligence community. the arb makes that very clear. that the intelligence community also did not really zero in on the connection between the deteriorating threat environment in eastern libya and in benghazi. and a direct threat on our compound. so we have work to do. we have work to do inside the department. we have work to do with our partners and the d.o.d. and the intelligence community to constantly be taking in information, making sure it does get to the right people, that it isn't somehow stove piped or stalled. but that it does rise to decision makers. and i'm committed to improving every way that i can on what the arb told us to do on assessing our intelligence. and i think it's fair to say, congressman, that we have to do this now because i predict we're going to be as we saw in algeria seeing all kinds of asymmetric threats. not just to our government

strikes me even more than the lack of bipartisanship and the aggressionive support for big government was that there's just no sense of that... that these things are part of our reality. >> brown: rev. hamilton, what did you hear? you had an interesting look from the pulpit today >> sure. well, first of all i think when the president is giving an inaugural address like this,ese trying to cast a lofty vision for the future rather than trying to get into the details of policy. so for me i heard him speaking about equality. i heard him speaking about the vision of children being able to have a future with hope. and i wasn't expecting him to give a detailed analysis of the economy today and what needs to be changed. i'm not suggesting that's not important but i was hearing him speak about lofty ideas of equality and freedom >> brown: yet he did point to some specific things as we heard in gwen's set-up >> that is true when it came to global warming or addressing the global climate change, i think we have to be willing to address these things. >> brown: trey grayson, what did you hear? >>

of the progressive side and tried to draw a bound between the government ruled by elite and ruled by a mob and he talked about the government that we won which is infrastructure, education, regulation and the good things and recognize the government can't solve all the problems, i thought that was a reaching out, if you will, a shout to the tea party right that's rejectionist. >> as we saw in pennsylvania, and professional that morning there's so much of this willingness to win the election by the republicans, they know they're headed into trouble. many like lebanon, take the fences down. okay, we're never going to be popular again so we're going to have to rig it. >> sean: so it's the gettysburg address, obama. republicans are going to have to steal elections. that's how bad nbc's gotten, that's the coverage. >> a couple of points about this quote, unquote news network and this quote, unquote newsman. on the gettysburg address, chris mathews has it it exactly wrong. he has the opposite. the gettysburg address was an attempt at healing of nation' wounds at the end of the civil war. obama's speech

our government did not see a direct threat of an attack of this scale despite the trend of security problems we faced. i have to add, neither did the intelligence community. the a.r.b. makes that very clear that the intelligence community also did thought really zero in on the connection between the deteriorating threat environment in eastern libya and benghazi and a direct threat on our compound. we have work to do, to take in the information, making sure it gets to the right people and it isn't somehow stovepiped or stalled. that it does rise to decision-makers. i am committed to improving every way i can on what a.r.b. toll us to do on assessing our intelligence. i predict we will see all kind of threats not just to our government facilities but to private sector-facilities. in tunisia, although we protected our embassy, our school was badly damaged. we have to take a broader view. the a.r.b. gives us a start. it is not the whole story. >> thank you secretary clinton for yourto securing america's place in the world the past four years. and your contributions to world peace. the f
of mass destruction. we were told by every level of government here there were iraqi weapons of mass destruction that justified a war, the invasion of the united states. we are still searching for those weapons. they didn't exist. thousands of americans lost their lives. we could have a hearing on that if you'd like. >> ifill: while the benghazi attack was the main focus, secretary clinton also turned her attention to upheaval elsewhere in north africa. >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. the arab revolutions have scrambled power dynamics and shattered security forces across the region. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists who look to extend their influence and plot further attacks of the kind we saw just last week in algeria. >> ifill: in mali, elements of al qaeda in the islamic maghreb, known as a.q.i.m., have seized a large swath of territory, prompting france to intervene militarily with air power and ground troops. the u.s. military is providing transport flights to aid the french, and clinton said other assistance is under consideration. >

if we recognize the new somaly government which could never have been possible out -- without the support, the u.n. was strongly behind it, we got other nations to invest. what we're looking at in west africa is to try to help support an african a.u. supported troop combination from a number of countries to really take the lead against the terrorists in northern mali. . this is hard. if the united states comes in and does something on her own, nobody can match us in military assets and prowess, but a lot of the challenges we face are not immediately or sustainbly solved by military action alone, therefore, we have to get countries in the region to increase their border security and increase their counterterrorist efforts inside their own boards. we have a lot to do now in west africa. so i think you're right to point out, the united states has to play a role, but it needs to be part of a multi lateral effort in order to have a chance at success. >> thank you, madam secretary. we have discussed many important issues. i remain concerned about whether the accountability review bo
